What really matters with plant protein is whether the raw material used here were grown without fungicides and pesticides. This I do not know, myprotein company should know that, and it would be good if they told us that. Otherwise we are eating pesticides... It is the same story with whey except that whey does not contain pesticides but perhaps more likely residue of antibiotics which cattle might have been feed with! It is a common practice unfortunately! So myprotein could you tell me whether your products use raw materials which have been treated with pesticides or not? Than I would rate your product with 5 stars. Now you only get 3.Goes Well With:water
As a vegan, this was the ideal product for me. Before, I had the whey isolate protein and I found the taste to be quite chemical and not very nice. However, this protein has a much more subtle, natural taste. I got the unflavoured version but added flavour drops (the banana ones) and it tastes pretty good. The texture is a bit odd but I really like it. It's kind of grainy, but reminds me of oat milk. The shakes are quite thick - I tend to use about 300-350ml of almond milk with 1 scoop. I can understand some people not liking the texture, but I think that's personal preference.
Although I have no tolerance problems with dairy. I wanted to remove it from my diet and see what difference and effect there was. In order to do this I had to remove Whey from my diet. This was the hardest hurdle to overcome due to the reliability of Whey protein in my shakes and bars etc. I bought the Vegan Blend powder to try as it was a mixture of three different types of protein powders and offered more benefits than just one variety. I buy / use the chocolate flavor and so i am unable to comment on the unflavored version. The powder mixes just like any other whey protein powder but the texture and taste is different as expected. The taste has a more earthy feel to it and I can imagine to some to be quite bitter. The chocolate flavoring does a good job of masking this bitterness. The texture is slightly more 'grainier' than whey powder but I don't mind it and it isn't noticeable if you make your shake with more liquid. In my opinion I have noticed more energy in my training and daily activities but without hard evidence to prove it, I cannot say everyone will experience the same benefits I have felt. As for vegans athletes / gym goers, this is a great substitute for whey and personally I think you are better off with this blend instead of whey. Although this is slightly pricier than impact whey and has a lower protein content per 100g (If my memory serves me right) I have used this for a few months and will continue to do so in the near and far future. I also use this for baking my own dairy free protein bars/ flapjacks.Goes Well With:Oats
I have tried both the chocolate flavour and the unflavoured versions and my preference is for the unflavoured. I found the chocolate far too sweet and artificial-tasting. If you want to blend it into various types of smoothies, then chocolate doesn't always work with the flavours you're including. Also, the protein content is reduced by the inclusion of cocoa, although not by very much. The unflavoured version works very well if you're blending it into other flavours. On it's own it's a little bitter, but not unbearably so. Overall, a reasonably priced vegan protein powder that mixes quite well and provides a good protein boost to your daily intake.Goes Well With:Smoothies, incuding banana, non-dairy milk and any other veg or flavours you want to add.
I have struggled to find a protein supplement that was non diary and easily digestible. I suffer from Crohn's disease, diary allergy, can't eat red meat and most vegetables so needed to increase my intake of protein and greens. This ticks every box! Would recommend to any IBD sufferers looking for a good supplement. Goes Well With:Alpro almond milk Peanut butter Coconut ice cream Honey
I'm jealous of anyone who can stomach the taste of this protein. Genuinely jealous. I usually have whey but I'm trying to go a non-dairy route and was hoping the Vegan Blend would be a good start... Boy, was I wrong. As soon as you open the bag, it smells like a combination of manure, dirt and and some other stuff that you likely wouldn't put near your mouth. Texture is gritty, but it's drinkable. The taste is what kills it. Even mixed with milk, oats, vanilla drops, the taste lingers and getting a mouthful down is proper effort. I'm going to try and mix it with a bunch of fruit tomorrow in the hope that I can mask the taste, but it seems highly unlikely. I know some of you will say just get it down you, it's only a 10 second job. But the taste lingers. For the last 5 hours any burp, exhale or bit of air from my throat/gut smells like this earthy excrement. It's not nice to say the least. Unless your life is dependent on gains and you can't have any other protein source, I really wouldn't bother.Goes Well With:The bin.
Tastes like feet when mixed just with water. I don't expect to enjoy my supplements so I am usually not really bothered about taste; but this protein caused me nausea. I find that mixing it with something sweet helps to take it down. Goes Well With:Maple syrup or honey
Tastes and smells like saw dust, doesn't mix well with water and has lumps in. Do not buy.
Being lactose intolerant it was difficult to find a protein powder to help me in my goals. Finally found this one and have tried both the unflavoured and chocolate versions. The unflavoured needs stuff added to it otherwise it is very sawdusty in taste but mixes ok, a little thick and grainy but generally easy to swallow. I tend to use this in fruit smoothies as it makes them nice and thick and masks the taste. The chocolate on the other hand mixes really well and has a good flavour, it is quite sweet though. The only issue I've found with this one is that when mixed little, black, hard, plasticy flakes appear which makes the last few gulps very gritty and not enjoyable. They aren't visible in the dried powder, only when its mixed. Goes Well With:Unflavoured - Anything with a strong taste, fruit Chocolate - Oat milk, banana, peanut butter
I started off with the unflavoured version. 1 scoop with approximately 250-300ml was palatable. Sure, it didn't taste amazing, but you can't really expect anything else from isolates. There are a lot of ways to make the unflavoured version taste better. I tried adding a small amount of agave (you really don't need that much to make a difference) which took quite a bit of the edge off. If you're using a blender, 1 banana works really well with it. It also goes perfectly with non-dairy yoghurt style products. My most common mix was a small amount of agave, some chia seeds and some flavoured ground linseed. Worked a treat. I've recently changed to the chocolate version, and it is surprisingly tasty. It almost feels a little bit too sweet after adjusting to the unflavoured version. It mixes well and quickly, but you won't be able to remove a small amount of the gritty taste. As other reviews below me have pointed out, you do get used to it. I have to say, I'm really happy to have found this product. On days where it can be hard to get your protein from whole vegetables, or if you're going to the gym regularly, this product is a life saver! Goes Well With:Agave, Alpro Soya Yoghurt, Banana, Chia Seeds, Milled Linseed, Porridge, Avocado (smoothie).
I have, for some reason, over the last couple of years started to become less tolerant to the everyday protein shakes that are on the market. due to getting a bad stomach after drinking the normal shakes i was missing out on a quick and easy intake of protein after my work outs. i did some research and was informed that it would be worth cutting out some of the typical ingredients found in the protein shakes i had been drinking. this lead me to the vegan blend. Taste is good. Chocolaty enough for me. mixability is very good. no lumps etc. protein content is decent enough with fairly low cals. texture, is a little different but nothing to get upset about. most importantly....NO MORE BAD STOMACH. i am now able to drink a quick shake with no annoying pains that follow. highly recommend if you have the same problems.
Best vegan protein for taste, value, mixability and ingredients.
I haven't ordered this for several months so I was shocked by the change in taste - before it was palatable, now it's grim. And I've got a pretty strong stomach! Disappointing - why change something that works?
I wanted a simple shake - you know, add milk or water, shake, drink. Tried that with the chocolate smooth version (whoever added the 'smooth' to its name has a great sense of humour) and it was totally undrinkable! It was like trying to drink powdered chalk that just tasted burnt rather than chocolatey. I then read the reviews - every single person has to add other ingredients to make this product anywhere near palatable. Come on folks - you wouldn't let the manufacturers of coca cola get away with selling you a product that needed a banana, peanut butter, extra cocoa and orange juice to make it drinkable - why does My Protein get away with it? Now I know why it was cheap! I am sorry - I normally try to be positive but I can find absolutely nothing positive to say about this product. I have rated it one star on every point - taste is appalling, mixability - well if you want to drink sandy water I suppose it's ok, effectiveness - totally not effective if your customers can't even drink the stuff! I am sure you can do better, My Protein, let me know when you do.Goes Well With:Mint toothpaste or mouthwash to get rid of the taste!
Without exaggerating, that is THE worst thing i have ever tasted in my entire life. It is honestly like drinking sand. I'd rather be skinny than drink that. Goes Well With:Nothing
Delivery great as always .I moved onto vegan blend as whey gave me digestive issues. I can honestly say, it's the worst thing I've ever tasted. It tastes like stale, sweaty socks. It doesn't mix at all, even in a blender, and leaves a bitter sludge at the bottom which is almost undrinkable. I've been using My Protein for nearly a year, had a bout 7/8 different things off them and this is the only one I've he a problem with. The thought of having a pre and post workout shake fills me with dread. However, it is effective. My muscles are more defined and ive added 7 push ups onto my record. Goes Well With:Nothing definitely not water and cocoa powder. Or in a smootie. Or with bananas. It tastes awful and overpowers everything you put it with.
Pretty disgusting taste (like hay). Makes me feel sick if I try to drink it with almond milk or in a green smoothie. Discovered that mixing it with soup masks the taste well, and makes a satisfying thick soup. Especially recommend mixing it with pea soup. Great if you're worried about getting enough protein, and want to get it in a cruelty-free way.Goes Well With:Soup
I love this protein powder. Pure hemp protein has the best effectiveness. But the taste is not great. I've tried many Vegan protein blends and this is the most neutral one which for me means - best tasting as I like to add fruits to the blender for taste. It's super-easy to digest too. Hemp protein is a complex protein with full spectrum of amino acids. Rice and pea protein individually are not complete protein but together are complete. Can't be happier with this product.Goes Well With:fruit
I can't tolerate whey protein taste- and digestion-wise, and I am also trying to eat as much vegan as I can, so this protein was my best option. I bought unflavoured, and the taste of this protein powder in my smoothie was something to get used to, but now I can't drink this smoothie without the protein powder anymore :) The texture of the powder is indeed a bit gritty, but it's tolerable and I even like it now. I found that it gets smoother when you both blend AND shake it. I like blending it with bananas, raw cacao and plain water - it makes a great post-workout smoothie with loads of minerals to nourish your depleted body.
I purchased 1KG to try, as I'd like to move away from dairy. I wasn't sure what to expect, as some of the reviews don't exactly sell the flavor and texture. However, I was pleasantly surprised, it is great. Texture is similar to making a shake with oats in a blender. I can also imagine this working really well in recipes too. I will definitely be back for more.
First time using a vegan blend. I am personally finding it hard to swallow, not due to taste but more so texture. I can't gulp it down as I normally would,I literally need to clear my throat with every mouthful. I'm not sure whether this will take some getting used to over time or whether I just can't handle this type of texture. Hopefully it will get better as i not only bought 1kg of this but also another 2.4kg from another company which gives me the same problem. :D I hope you have more joy.
I came across Vegan Blend when looking for a complete protein blend that is dairy free. I can't tolerate even the slightest amount of lactose so MyProtein's dairy free range is a real blessing for my workout goals. VB is a little gritty but it mixes well. The chocolate flavour is a little over-sweet for my palate but I'm getting used to it ;)
Great protein for vegans! It's a pitty, that flavored version contains sucralose. Is there Amino acid profile available somewhere?
I bought the unflavored variant. No bloating, works well, I recover much faster from workouts and only drink one scoop per day alongside a versatile vegan diet. At first I tried mixing it with water or almond milk, stirring it with a spoon, and while it would mix well, I could still feel the gritty texture and it was very unpleasant. But then I bought a food processor (one of those cheap wand-style processors) and mixed in a pint glass one banana, one scoop of Vegan Blend and water and just mixed it for 10-15 sec. The smoothy you get is really tasty, doesn't feel gritty and goes down really easily! It's also really good value for money!Goes Well With:Water and bananas.
I don't normally write reviews but feel that this product warrants one. I don't use dairy products because of the health implications and also won't use Soy protein because I think it's only suitable for women. Since I started using Essential Amino Acids about 2-3 years ago I've realized that your body doesn't need anywhere near the amount of protein most bodybuilding websites suggest. I know that because I now consume 1000 calories a day less than I used to and have just lost body fat and actually increased my strength and muscularity. While getting enough EEA's is the most important factor if you don't ingest any non essential amino's its possible the body will convert the essential amino's and therefore reduce your muscle building potential. I don't have must of an appetite these days and try to follow as close to a vegan diet as possible so I generally consume 3 full meals per day 2 of which consist of the following: 100g Instant Oats, 40g Vegan Blend (Chocolate), 10g Glutamine, 5g BCAA's, 7g MCT Powder. For dinner I either have 150g Chicken, 125g Wholegrain Rice, 40g Spinach and a tea spoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil. I also take 10g of a mixture of Wheatgrass and Barleygrass powder before my breakfast shake and consume 5-10g of EEA tablets before and after training and before bed. In the after training I use 40g of fast acting carbohydrates and I also mix 20g BCAA's to drink before, during and after training. This product is far superior to whey and any other animal product. I always use vegan friendly supplements these days because they work more effectively and don't give you the stomach upset of whey/milk which I don't use what so ever!! I have used a mixture of Brown Rice Protein and Pea Protein Isolate in the past and found them effective but the Hemp Protein gives it a better overall amino acid profile. I highly recommend this product to anyone involved in any sport or physical exercise. Goes Well With:Instant Oats, MCT Powder, Branch Chain Amino's, Coconut or Rice Milk, Glutamine
It doesn't mix well with water it's very bitty and makes me cough. It's ok with hemp milk but doesn't thicken drinks up
HAVE MERCY ON YOURSELVES AND DO NOT BUY THIS BLEND!!! I've been on the vegan diet for a few weeks now and the reviews signalled for me to buy this blend, but it is so unbearable to drink that I found myself dreading having my post workout shake. It consists of a sawdust texture with added sweetener that adds more chemicals than actual good taste. I ended up throwing out the bag and INSIST that no one go through the taste bud genocide which I endured. Goes Well With:...the trash
Only just started using protein so not really sure about the results. I use this powder with water and it mixes quite well, but the texture is still a bit weird. I used the chocolate smooth and the taste is horrendous. I actually have to pinch my nose every time I drink it and have another drink on standby as soon as I finish.
Literally one of the worst things I've tasted. Clearly the other reviews are Vegans who aren't used to food actually tasting good. I am Lactose intolerant and I usually go for the soy protein isolate which tastes like a dream. I know the intention of these products isn't to taste good but after a workout the last thing you want to have is a product that makes your whole body feel utterly sick! I have tried all the variations in mixing this and nothing makes the blend drinkable. I feel also the blend doesn't mix very well as it has a consistency of sand even when mixed in a blender. I will be sticking to Soy. Nice idea but this is going straight in the bin. :)Goes Well With:Disappointment.
Not at all bad but could be more chocolatey for my tastes. I found this to taste quite powdery which I think is because it is so low fat (not a bad thing) so I tend to mix this into a chocolate shake with almond milk, almond butter and raw cacao powder (and other bits and pieces I have around like bananas) and it tastes just fine. Because I mix this with fat I do consider this more of a meal just FYI.Goes Well With:Almond butter
I used hemp protein previously and wanted to try something else and cheaper. Almost threw up trying the unflavoured the first time. All non dairy protein has a horrible grainy texture but I have learnt to add a little more water which makes it a bit better. I switch between chocolate and unflavoured, chocolate has a much nicer taste but less protein content. When using unflavoured I add the MP flavourings. Prefer the powders over the drops (you have to use a lot of drops to combat the protein taste). Also does not taste great with fruit flavourings (strawberry at a push) again due to the protein taste. Goes Well With:MP flavourings
I use a scoop of the unflavoured in with my Vanilla Instant Oats. So far Ive had the following combinations: •As a shake •As protein-pancakes •As porridgeGoes Well With:Instant Vanilla/Banana Oats
The Vegan Blend protein powder smells horrible and tastes horrible, but I did not buy it for the taste or the smell, I bought it for protein! The problem is, it just WONT BLEND with water, it just stays really bitty and definitely undrinkable. I have tried shakers, blenders but I just dont know... Please Help me if you know why this is!! Goes Well With:?????? HELP
This seems to be the case with all vegan blends - the raw product tastes like silt. However, with a bit of experimentation it is usually possible to make it drinkable. Unsweetened almond milk and maple syrup works well, or try soy milk. Good results from the protein and never leaves me bloated/too full.Goes Well With:Almond milk, soy milk
I'm pretty sure this product is not appropriate for human consumption... it's absolutely dreadful. I can eat pretty much anything and this nearly made me sick. It's like drinking mud. EW.Goes Well With:if I was Shrek I would probably rinse myself in it
This protein is fantastic, a blend of all the vegan proteins is great, builds an nice amino profile. Many gains were made with this protein. Only problem is the consistency, I'm not the biggest fan, it's a lot like casein. Goes Well With:Alpro vegan chocolate soy milk
Gr8 product. Do need to mix in other items but that's more for my own personal taste. Mixes in a blender on problem. Goes Well With:Banana Peanut butter Carrot mixed nuts Berries
The taste of the chocolate blend has got worse since I last ordered it months ago. It tuned to taste ok but now has a awful after taste. Myprotien should stick to the earlier recipe.
I'm not really picky about taste and like grainy but this is something else... I was under the impression that hemp protein powder is one of the least smooth but, boy, was I wrong! What it does excel at however is baking. My protein banana pancakes keep together much better with this than the ones done with hemp powder and are very pleasant in texture. I don't know how the graininess dissapears but it does. So I keep it for my pancakes, cookies and bread and am happy :)Goes Well With:Into anything baked
Thought I would try the chocolate as I usually have unflavoured, but annoying the fact I had to buy 2.5kg bag just to try it! And now I have it, it's awful. It's so sweet I physically feel sick after drinking it. It's ok if you like sweet things. Mixes better than the unflavoured.
Perfect combination of pea, rice and hemp protein without soya. Really like chocolate smooth taste. Perfect with banana.Goes Well With:250ml water + banana
Wasn;t sure about this whilst reading the reviews as it seemed very much a love it or hate it kind of thing with a war over whether unflavoured or chocolate flavour is best. I read 1 particular review about a Crohns sufferer who had pretty much the same symptoms as me who also suffers from Crohns and not being able to take in dairy and difficult to get veg who swore by it so that's what convinced me to try it. I took a chance on chocolate flavour and i love it. I mix mine with almond milk and 1 heaped spoonful of PB powder and to me, it's just like drinking a healthier version of Reece's! As soon as I'm low on it, the next one will be ordered!Goes Well With:Almond milk, pb2, peanut butter powder
So I haven't been using this product long enough to see major changes but what I can say is that it needs to mix better with water. When drinking, you tend to get a carpet-like feeling on the tongue as I'm not sure it mixes very well? However I've tried mixing tge chocolate flavour vegan blend with chocolate soy milk which works well. But I really feel like it would come in handy if it mixed better with water - such as when you're about to leave the gym with a filled shaker bottle. Goes Well With:Alpro Chocolate soya milk
besides the limited flavours and awful taste of the unflavoured, this is an excellent protein. and works well in a number of smoothies that can mask its flavour. very hard to drink unflavoured by itself. excellent value for money and high protein contentGoes Well With:Banana, vanilla soy milk and peanut butter smoothie
As a vegan who can't cook particularly well I was looking for a protein supplement and ordered this. It's pretty foul on it's own but I barely notice it in a smoothie. Very good mix of proteins.Goes Well With:Banana, homemade oat milk or almond milk and a spoonful of raw cacao. (Add spinach/kale too for extra boost.)
I made the mistake of trying the unflavored version on its own, I advise you don't do this it is awful BUT in a blender with a banana and its okay. I love the vanilla true diet and have been using this for months but have just stopped dairy for other reasons so this blend is perfect for me. Goes Well With:Banana
Free of allergens which is good, downside is it tastes pretty nasty, even with plenty of chocolate flavoring or toffee flavour drops added. Mainly its the powdery, 'planty' texture to it that no amount of flavour can disguise. It's better for me but I really miss the pleasant taste of impact whey protein :-(
As somebody who’s allergic to dairy, this is a great product. Fast and slow digesting proteins means it’s ideal for post workout and before bed. It’s a great – and cheap – alternative to...erm...a certain supplement that sounds like Wun Sarrior, and with the deals My Protein knock out on a regular basis, I always get value for money. No complaints here as ever with My Protein. Goes Well With:CLA, Thermopure, Beta Ecdysterone.
Unfortunately this is the first and the last time I'm buying unflavoured vegan blend from My Protein. It doesn't mix with basically anything and tastes like plaster and leaves sandy aftertaste in your mouth and throat. I'm not very fussy with tastes but I simply can't handle this one...The chocolate smooth isn't that bad but unflavoured even with flav drops is just undrinkable. I can't tell about effectiveness because I can't force myself to drink it often enough to see results.Goes Well With:nothing really...
Gives me the worst stomach aches and bloating I've experienced yet from protein shakes. Very gritty texture with not a lot of flavour. Don't recommend this one at all. I have had a lot of vegan blends and this one is not good. Goes Well With:Wind-eze, toilets.
